Chevdove Posted August 10, 2022 Report Share Posted August 10, 2022 Why Insult the GWOAT!? This is another way this acronym has been portrayed and I like it much better than GOAT. Anyway recently, there has been much rhetoric about the track star Sha’carri Richardson both negative and positive because she was recently cut from being able to compete in major track events across the world but more so because she has been very vocal too, in speaking out against certain athletes one of which was Allyson Felix. But why? Like many other athletes, Allyson was asked to make a comment about Sha’carri and imo, she responded very favorably, however, Sha’carri went after Allyson which much indignation. Not only did Sha’carri insult Allyson, of what has become termed a classic, a GWOAT [Greatest Woman Of All Time], she also insulted the Jamaican athletes and more. Like Allyson responded, I believe that Sha’carri has been under a lot of pressure especially since she recently lost her mother and I also believe that because she is so young, she needs to have some help on how to interview. At any rate, out of seemingly nowhere, it seems as though Sha’carri was replaced by another amazing and young athlete, Abby Steiner. Allyson Felix Abby Steiner Abby has stepped up to the challenge! Abby is so lovely and gracious, and she interviews well. She was recently interviewed and expressed how wonderful it was for her to be able to be near to some of the athletes that she has admired. In one interview, Abby sat near to another of my favorites, Shelley Fraser-Pryce and it was like I could since the positive energy between those two. Sha’carri bashed the Jamaican girls, however, Abby praises them and says that she is so happy to be part of the experience. In one recent event, Abby drew the 8th lane and that is a tough lane to come out of, however, Abby said that she gave it all she got and amazingly, she did pretty great! And later to her surprise, Abby was selected to be on one of the relay teams along with Jenna Prandini and guess what!? They won the gold! Like Sha’carri, Abby is younger than the other powerhouses such as my other favorites, Jenny Prandini and Elaine Thompson-Herah, and hopefully, they both have a bright future ahead. I hope that Sha’carri will resurface again but as a public figure, I hope that she will have more respect and maturity in her comments about others.
